Verdict

Hector's Chance ran well on his comeback at Kempton but would prefer a longer trip. OPERA BUFF makes more appeal as he began last season off a 12lb higher mark and can finally open his account with a recent outing at Yarmouth under his belt. Grand Theft Equine can do better back on this surface and Salient has been in fine form here of late, going close again over track and trip last time when just behind runner-up Lady Barastar. Russian Storm looks best of the rest dropped in class.
